      This was awesome!! The salsa ranch dressing was great. I'm trying to think of other uses for it as well. I will definitely make this again. Sorry no photo, my husband was nipping at my heels to get this! Made for Went to Market Tag.

      We loved this recipe ! Thank you for sharing it. I made Guacamole and Pico to go with it and just dipped the extra chips in those.

      If we make this again, I would shread the chicken up as it would help to spread the chicken around and not have some chips with alot of chicken and some with nothing at all. Would also make this with some shredded lettuce, tomatos,sour cream and other "nacho's grande" type ingredients.
